Laker's Story...
Laker is a quiet handsome boy that is 2-3 years old. He is a beagle/basset mix who came to us from a Michigan rescue. All signs point to him being part of a pack with very little human contact! He’s very curious and loving.

Laker gets along GREAT with other dogs and will take his lead from any dog that wants to show him the way. He is definitely a follower. With humans, Laker is very shy. While he wags his tail, it took him a few days to warm up to the humans in the house. Laker is hesitant to get near any human company that comes over that he doesn't know - he is by no means aggressive!! He’s just not sure what to do with humans J.

He LOVES to go outside and explore the yard and chase the squirrels. Laker gets a lot of energy out while running in the yard. In the house, he's on the low energy side. Laker likes to play with the other dog in the house but will not initiate. He also likes to lie quietly and chew a toy while in the house.

After a couple of weeks in the house, Laker turned into a real lover. He loves lap time and being pet. He is potty trained and sleeps in a crate at night. Laker hates to be alone so we think he would do best in a quiet home with at least one other dog.

Laker needs a home with a very loving, nurturing and patient family. Once you get to know him, he will steal your heart!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Laker, a Pittsburgh Beagle/Basset Hound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Beagle/Basset Hound for sale in Pittsburgh, or seeking a Beagle/Basset Hound dog from a breeder in Pittsburgh.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Pittsburgh already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Pittsburgh breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Beagle/Basset Hound breeders who help with Beagle/Basset Hound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Pittsburgh paves the way for another one to be saved.
